Tilapia Tacos

Inexpensive tilapia is readily available and sustainable. Broiling makes this a no-fuss fish dish. The tilapia cooks fast, so make sure all the other components for the taco are ready before you put it under the heat .        Serves 6 (serving size: 2 tacos)       
My  family  love  these  tacos  , so easy and the  clean up is  not  much fuss  .

1         teaspoon garlic powder
1         teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
1/4      teaspoon ground coriander
1/4      teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/8      teaspoon kosher salt, divided
2         pounds tilapia fillets 
1         tablespoon olive oil
1         tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
2         teaspoons canned chopped green chiles
1        diced peeled avocado
12      (6-inch) corn tortillas
Cooking spray
6        lime wedges

1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Combine first 4 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Brush fillets with oil, and sprinkle with spice mixture. Place fillets on a baking sheet. Broil 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

3. Combine remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, cilantro, chiles, and avocado in a bowl; lightly mash with a fork.

4. Heat tortillas on a grill pan coated with cooking spray 20 seconds on each side or until lightly charred. Divide avocado mixture and fish among tortillas. Serve with lime wedges.
